Legrand North America’s Red Cross disaster relief fundraiser has collected $112,540, which will provide assistance to the people and regions affected by natural disasters throughout the country, according to the company.
Legrand president and CEO John Selldorff encouraged all North American associates to donate, incentivizing them with a dollar-for-dollar company match.
“I’m pleased to report that a number of Legrand associates throughout the country generously contributed to this important cause,” said Selldorff. “Since we have much to be thankful for, and we have been fortunate in our achievements this year, I’m very proud to announce that we will contribute the full $100,000 on top of the employee voluntary contributions to support the Red Cross in their ongoing disaster relief efforts.”
The Red Cross says it responds to nearly 66,000 disasters each year—ranging from single-family crises to city- and region-wide crises.
